Team17 quits the MetaWorms NFT project

After 24 hours of fast running, Team17’s Project MetaWorms NFT has been closed by the developer.

Team17, best known for publishing Worms and Overdo franchise, has recently faced pressure from all sides when it announced plans to launch the MetaWorms NFT project. The project was then shut down the next day, with many fans and game developers severing ties with Team17. After pressure from the community and their partners, Team17 made the decision to abandon the project.

Ghost Town game, extremely popular developer Overdo series, expressed a firm stance against the NFT in a tweet following the announcement of the MetaWorms NFT Project.

However, the internal backlash didn’t stop with Ghost Town Games. Several other developers have strongly criticized the publisher’s way of entering the NFT space. Outside of the general public, the strongest opposition to Team17’s attempt to penetrate the NFT space came from Go under Aggro Crab developer.

“We believe that NFT cannot be eco-friendly, or useful, and really just a total combination,” tweeted Aggro Crab.

The backlash of Team17 has faced the common psyche of most gamers. Many players don’t want any monetization aspect to continue to surpass their game, cryptocurrency, or other stuff. It’s hard to release pleasant patch notes in half the time, so the NFT promoters will need to work a lot harder to win over the majority of gamers.

Team17 backs the NFT platform reinforcing the precedent set by EXPERT 2 GSC Game World developer when it supported on its NFT plans following backlash from the community. Team17 quits the MetaWorms NFT project
